Sony MDR-XB550AP review

  (Rating Hidden)

Sony's 'extra bass' range is all about increased power in the low end of the sound range, aimed at fans of dance music and hip hop. The MDR-XB550AP headphones are a wired, on-ear member of this range. We sent them to our lab to find out whether these...

Sony MDRXB550AP

 

It's very comfortable and quality sound is average others are better. Mine is a lovely olive green. The material used is okay, the cable is excellent and will not tackle up easily. The head phone coveting the ears are a good size for my ears.

The price and should come in a special traveling bag.

Good but not great

 

Bought these for an overseas trip, regretting not getting noise-cancelling or bluetooth but these still did a good job. Wish they would either fold up or have a case to make it easier for traveling. Okay for their price but wouldn't recommend as I feel...

Good for just listening to music on iPod

 

I bought these for DJing, Studio recording & Mastering & listening to music regularly. They're good for just listening to music on the regular & DJing but for studio recording & mastering they're no good. I had budget ones before from JB Hi Fi, basic...
